Alex first met with the community development officer (CDO), sub county chief and the health assistant at Bugaya sub county to mobilize them to attend the triggering meeting on Wednesday next week. The chief of the sub county was very happy that kibo group came in at the right time to rescue the situation in Kitukiro village. The village leaders for long have made several visits to the sub county offices requesting fora borehole in their community but the government hadn’t got any resources to help. The sub county health assistant and the CDO promised to attend in person the triggering session in the village. It’s very important during the triggering session that all efforts are put together to educate the village residents the values of proper sanitation and hygiene in their homes.
While in the meeting with the village leaders, the village leaders were called upon to mobilize all the people in the village to attend the triggering meeting on Wednesday next week.

The triggering meeting is to take place on Wednesday 17/03/2021 and all the leaders are very excited to learn more about the values of proper sanitation and hygiene practices required. Alex then visited the chairman’s home and looked at the new bathroom that he recently constructed at his home after the baseline survey that was conducted by Alex two weeks ago. Some people have already started to work in their homes to improve on the sanitation and hygiene standards before the triggering day which is a good indicator that the village will respond positively to the WASH program.
